Brother & Sister Johnson, 

We are pleased to announce that your son Elder Glenn Wesley Johnson, is safely with us in the Berlin Mission. We have had the opportunity to get to know him, and he is ready and excited to be here. Sister Fingerle and I look forward to working with him and will do all that we can to help him serve a happy and successful mission. Elder Johnson’s first companion will be Elder Mehr, and they will work together in Oldenburg for the next several weeks. If you would like to send letters to your missionary, please send them to the mission office address:

We have all discussed the mission goals and agreed that we will start right, work hard, and finish strong in order to fulfill our purpose to invite others to come unto Christ.

We, along with your son, appreciate the support which you give through your weekly letters and daily prayers in his behalf. Thank you for raising your son so that he can be part of this amazing work.

Typical Apartments in Oldenburg, Germany. Everyone rides a bike in Oldenburg!

Oldenburg is home to 160,000 people and the economic hub of the Bremen - Oldenburg metropolitan region. It is a university city and was the German City of Science in 2009. A former princely residence, it looks back over a history spanning 1,200 years. Oldenburg is a lively city with a great deal of charm embedded in a beautiful, unspoiled natural landscape. It has more than a few surprises in store.
